Publisher's Summary

Truth! Justice! Freedom! And a hard-boiled egg!

Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch had it all. But now he's back in his own rough, tough past, without even the clothes he was standing up in when the lightning struck.

Living in the past is hard. Dying in the past is incredibly easy. But he must survive; he has a job to do. He must track down a murderer, teach his young self to be a good copper, and change the outcome of a bloody rebellion. There's a problem, though: if he wins, he's got no wife, no child, no future.

This is a Discworld Tale of One City, with a full chorus of street urchins, rebels, secret policemen, and other children of the revolution.

What the Critics Say

"British author Pratchett's storytelling, a clever blend of Monty Pythonesque humor and Big Questions about morality and the workings of the universe, is in top form...in the phenomenally bestselling Discworld series." (Publishers Weekly)
"The author's talent for comedy does not falter as he continues to set the standard for comic fantasy." (Library Journal)
"Stephen Briggs's voices add dimension to the characters while avoiding exaggeration. He brings out the satire without compromising the subtlety of the humor....The series is meant to be read aloud." (AudioFile)

    "If this were a film it would be an comedy thriller"

    The complexity of the plot and the pace of the story stops you trying to guess what next and you become completely immersed in this amazingly written and narrated fantasy adventure. One of the best from the best.

    "Night watch by terry pratchett"

    TerryPratchett at his very best. A clever story involving time travel, revolutions, Samuel Vimes, Ankh-Morpork and lots of quantum. Best not to try this one if it is your first Discworld story but other than that, go for it. A superb audio book rendition by the talented Stephen Briggs too. He 'gets it' completely.

    "Night Watch"

    Night Watch, as is usual with Terry Pratchett's work, entertains, brings laughter and inspires deep thought. An excellent book

    "Pratchett's darkest work"

    My favorite book from the disc world series. A dark tale of time travel and bloody revolution. An absolute success from Pratchett who mixes humour and an unnerving ability to highlight the worst aspects of humanity.

    "the same as all discworld amazing!"

    Funny and insightful also clever it is suited for people just getting into the series and long time readers it has many reoccurring character that we see in other books like death vimes Fred also you get to see noby when he was a kid saying he was probably 32 amazing book however if you are new to discworld and this is your first book I would recommend listing to it again after you read a few more if you like the series I would recommend jingo guards guards mort and many the truth because that explains dibbiler to some extent.

    "Well worth it"

    First few minutes listening to Stephen I thought he wasn't right to read the story but after a few minutes more his skill at portraying the different characters shine through and I really enjoyed the book. Excellent story and narration thanks for the distraction
